Good news! My hemoglobin levels have increased! My kidney functions are stable and I guess I am good to go for surgery next Monday morning. I am a little afraid..or should I say nervous but I guess maybe that is a normal thing. I wish I hadn't read the book that tells pretty much exactly what they do. When I read I picture everything in my mind and sometimes I think things get exaggerated. So I am trying to tell myself that the surgeon has done thousands of these....most successful I am sure. Total knee replacement is a pretty common surgery now. I also have to tell myself not to expect to get up the next day and be able to walk perfectly. It is only a couple of weeks until the start of school and I am hoping to be able to start the first day. Someone told me today that might be a mistake. I will just have to wait and see how I do.
I had to stop taking Celebrex today....and I guess I am supposed to wash with Dial soap. I hope it doesn't irritate my skin, because I remember in the past that it did.
Last night my son sent me a text at 12:30 am....I guess he forgets that we are three hours different. Anyway it was a little video of my grand baby Ryleigh. She was laughing really loud. So cute. I tried to download it onto my computer. Talk about problems....a Microsoft warning came up....trying to help and I got scared and backed out and I think everything is now okay. I wish you could have heard her laugh.
Tonight I had my first summer sweet corn for dinner. It was delicious. I only bought two ears and saved the remaining ear for tomorrow. I also had one sliced tomato and a hamburger patty. It was all delicious. Later tonight I will have a small dish of strawberries for snack. I love eating fresh produce. What is your favorite summertime meal?
